1. Understanding Zero Coupon Bonds

2. Zero coupon bonds is a bond that is issued at a discounted price and redeemed at par at the time of maturity.

3. Lets try and understand this through an illustration

4. Let us assume that Mr Rahul has invested Rs. 920/- in a zero coupon. Let us further assume that after 1 year he would receive Rs. 1000/- .

5. In the instant case Rahul pays Rs. 920/- (Discounted price) and he would receive Rs. 1000/- (Par value) after 1 year.

6. Return (yield) on the bond for Rahul is 8.70% and can be arrived as follows (1000 – 920) / 920
